One Image and Two Completely Different Cards

For both of these cards I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps digital imaged called "Sweet Pea" by Rebecca Sinz.  I decided to make both cards Spring-like.  I have coloured them both with Promarkers, distressed around the edge with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and added a chalk ink pad to accentuate the edge.
For my first card I have used Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots, Summer's Lace Dreams and The Boys Zone as my backing papers.
I have inked a doily with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye distress ink with my Inkylicious brush and just gone around the edge with the same chalk ink pad used around the image.  The card has been finished off with some lace, flowers, brad, gems and a sentiment from a Debbi Moore CD.
The second card I have made to take part in the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week.  Here is their sketch:
I really struggle with Clean and Simple (CAS) cards but I am happy with the way this has turned out.  More and more CAS cards seem to sell.  No doubt this is down to the costs of posting more elaborate cards.  The backing papers I have been given.  The card has been finished off with two Card Candi and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
